The Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen (RDOS) is reminding residents and visitors that during a wildfire, smoke conditions can change quickly over short distances and can vary considerably hour-by-hour.
A Smoky Skies Bulletin has been issued for multiple regions across the province including the Okanagan. People with pre-existing health conditions are more likely to experience health effects from smoke exposure.
The RDOS Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) is monitoring conditions and reminds residents and visitors to take steps now to prepare for a wildfire or other emergency.
